It's Colour Week at Just Us Girls

It's Saturday and time for a new challenge over at
Just Us Girls and Sue has chosen these
 fabulous bright colours as our Host.

I recently bought a variety of dies and thought the one I chose
would be perfect for my cas card.

I cut the 3 colours above and glued them
(with great difficulty and will use JAC paper next time)
to white card stock. This was then attached to a
popped stitched die cut and onto the card base.
I then found the Berry Vine die cut from Kaisercraft on my desk
and was a perfect topping. Added a few coloured punched dots
and sentiment from Happy Little Stampers to finish.

Now pop over and see how our Guest Darnell and the Team
chose to use these 3 colours and come play.

Thanks for dropping in

Just Peeking In!

It's time for a new challenge over at Cardz4Galz
and Hosting this time is  Jan choosing Cats or Kittens.

I have this fabulous stamp set from Crackerjack Palace
which was just perfect!
I inked it up with SU Close to Cocoa then set it aside while I
went to work on my brick wall.
I embossed my Kaisercraft Brick folder onto Kraft card stock
 then randomly added a couple of coats of white texture paste.
I did a bit more sponging to finish off the brick wall.
Sponged TH Antique Linen around the cat image then 
attached it to brown card stock.
Added the sentiment and tore the edges to show my
peek a boo cat. Touched the eye with glossy accents.
Finished my sentiment inside.

And that's my card for this fortnight's challenge.
Hope you get a chance to pop over and see what
 the Team created and come join in.

Thanks for dropping in

Meet 'Megan'

Meet 'Megan'

I love this big Julie Nutting stamp as it is perfect for paper piecing
and that is what the optional 'Twist' is this month at
Mix It Up Challenge. It is always Anything Goes
and if you love paper piecing - come join us this month
and if you just want to play that's fine too.
There's still a few weeks to go.

I rummaged through my odd bits of DP using
a large piece for the background and again for
attaching Megan. This was cut from TH Mixed Media.
I coloured Megan's flesh lightly and then got into
stamping her top and skirt then cutting various pieces
to paper piece. I even cut out her boots.
I haven't been in my flower supplies for an age and
once again they have come in handy for my floral spray.
They were placed in front of some Kaisercraft leaves.
Added the Beautiful die from CUTplorations
and finished with randomly scattered pearls.

Thanks for dropping by today.
Till next time Cherrrio from
